Better than baby Einstein

So earlier tonight I was looking for a particular song on the internet (which shall remain unnamed for reasons I am slightly too embarrassed to admit) and I eventually found this. Several years ago, I was watching Classic Arts Showcase (which I no longer get - quite upset about that and I plan to do something about it - later) and I saw a song performed very much like this. I never thought I would see anything like it again (you know, with the loss of my channel and all). But I sat here with Benjamin and watched it, he became mesmerized. When he would lose interest, the chords would grab it back again.

Yes, better than Baby Einstein

A Moment

I couldn't find this on youtube so I couldn't imbed it
I got it 4 years ago and it is still stashed away in my old yahoo folders.
Take a moment
My children came home talking about the twin towers. I know it has been 7 years, but it just really hit home when my 8 year old said 'It happened 7 years ago'
Gotta go pick up the other child
God Bless America

Bob the Builder, eat your heart out


why allowing my eight year old to use his father's power tools doesn't phase me at all, I will never know. But dang, isn't he so cute in that mask? Larry made him wear it. I was quite surprised since the man never wears them himself


I made this cake that I have wanted to make for so long and it was so amazing. I just can't believe it!

Here is what it looked like on the web:
And here is mine:

This is a close up before I painted her hair and eyebrows on. You can barely make out the little cheeks and lips. It looked better with the food coloring on, but I didn't get a close up of the baby once I finished her. And yes, my flowers are silk, but with feeding my baby and all, I just didn't have time to make sweet pea flowers made from fondant. The gum paste I had was just not drying and it wasn't working out for me. I wish my pink would have been slightly less shocking, but IDONTCARE! I did it! Yes, I am still reeling in disbelief
